Life for a single mom in Los Angeles takes an unexpected turn when she allows three young guys to move in with her.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Romantic - Fans of Reese Witherspoon will enjoy this light romantic comedy that positions her in an older and more mature light than her previous films of the genre. Other familiar faces such as Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, and Candice Bergen have smaller supporting roles. While there are young kid characters prominently featured, some language, suggestive content, and adult themes will be of caution to parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Witherspoon is taking at least two steps backward as Alice. She is just too smart of an actress to believably play a pushover who is prone to anxiety attacks and being taken advantage of by others. When her brief imitation of Bell's snarling Labradoodle is her funniest scene, there is a problem here.

NY Post Full Review
Good You're always aware it's not a feat of filmmaking, but you couldn't care less. It's completely implausible... It's dramatically lacking! It's absolutely fantastic. What puts the bonkers premise of "Home Again” inside the realm of possibility is the brilliant casting of Candice Bergen as Witherspoon's mom, a former cinema siren.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Below Average ...a patently bogus romcom in which every note rings false. Witherspoon is a genuine fireball of a star, and it takes a lot to muffle her high spirits in a blanket of bland. So congratulations, Home Again. Against all odds, you've done it.
